European Panorama - 10 September 2012

17 Feb 2012 Renee asked


Hi All,

My fiancee and I are booked to travel on the Panorama tour leaving London on 10 September 2012. Just wondering if there was anyone else booked to go on this tour? Would like to meet people before hand :)

    Hi Renee, how are you?

    My best friend and I will be on this tour.

    We are arriving in London on the 22nd of August and will be going on a UK trip before we do this tour. We’ll be arriving back in London a couple of days before the start of The Panorama and trying to fit in some West End Shows or the Wax museum – among other things.

    We’d love to catch up and make some travel buddies.

    Hope to talk soon, Wes.

It is out first trip overseas so its all a bit daunting :) We’re flying from Australia straight to Denmark for a couple of days and then spending 3 nigths in London before the tour!! Would love to catch up beforehand… the Wax Museum sounds good :) Im currently trying to work out all of thie things we want to do while we’re over there… especially in London… so any suggestions would be great :) How long is your tour for Wes? Have you travelled before Morgan and Aimee?

    Talk soon.

    Hi Rj1817…. I actually have a question because I’m starting to look at what we need!!! Was it cold or hot in a majority of the places?? And is there a fair few places to wash?

    Hi Rj1817…. Was it hot or cold in majority of the places? Are there many places to wash?? Trying to work out what we’ll need clothing wise over there!! :)

    I don’t know exactly how the weather will be in Western Europe during September, but in June it was fantastic. It only rained was a few times during driving days and our second last day of the tour in Amsterdam. Aside from that it was pretty much always sunny out. I’ve heard it does tend to rain more over there in September though.

    I was able to get my clothes washed once a week. There’s a lady that does it in Nice (French Riviera), someone that does it in Corfu (this one wasnt very good though, a few people had some clothes ruined), and I was able to do it in the Austrian Tyrol (some people also did their’s in Vienna). So, plenty of opportiunities.

    You may want to bring one long sleeve t-shirt and a hoodie because it does tend to get a little cold on the bus some times and it is chilly up on Mt. Titlus. However, I would suggest just buying “warmer” clothes on your tour because there’s no sense lugging them around until you know you’ll actually need them. Hopefully they’ll still be enough snow at the top for you guys to have some fun in. Even though I’m from Canada and get to play in snow every winter, going up there with all these Aussies on tour was such a blast and one of the highlights of the tour.
